And just like that, we are living in Los Angeles.
We flew to San Francisco from Hawaii and barely had a moment to breathe and settle back in before another big change occurred. Cat didn't even unpack her suitcase before she was suddenly in L.A. starting a new job. She was also trying to find us a place to live (all without a car!). I stayed in SF and attempted to pack up our apartment and finish work. I've moved a lot in my life (maybe 20 times) and the act of packing up your world does not get easier. If anything, the older I get the harder it gets. We were home (San Francisco) less than a month before the moving truck came and we drove our little family to our new home in L.A. If we ever needed a test to see how well we can work as a team, I think that after this year Cat and I would pass with an A+
They say moving is one of the most stressful situations you can go through. Changing cities is almost like changing worlds. Everything is new, and this is both exciting and a bit overwhelming. Thank goodness for friends, thank goodness for our sense of humor, and thank goodness for Cat!
Hawaii feels like ages ago, San Francisco feels like years ago, and Los Angeles feels like a friend we're just getting to know. What I'm trying to say is that the only thing that has felt like Home this past year has been Cat and Lola. Our little family has been a traveling circus!!
